Blowhole, St. Augustine, Florida, USA

submitted by: Captain Rediculo

GENERAL
Down the beach, about a mile north from The Entrance, is Blowhole. Named in the late '60s for its spitting, left-hand tubes, this is St. Augustine's most famous spot. It works on any swell, but on a south to east, it's usually a foot bigger here than anywhere in North Florida. It can have hollow lefts and long, up-the-beach rights. Obviously, this is where the pack swarms, so act accordingly. Colder winter weekday mornings are the least crowded. Ability level: experienced
Bring your: good behavior
Access: drive on the beach and park anywhere
Bicep burn: 6, more or less, depending on the day. (1=knee-high Waikiki; 10=triple-overhead Ocean Beach)
Poo patrol: 2 (1=clean 10=turds in the lineup) )

SPOT RATING: 5*****
(1- not so okay, 2-okay, 3-cool, 4-very cool, 5-the ultimate spot)
